autsch… Creative Weblogging hat Investoren gefunden und die Reaktion von Jason Calacanis, dem ehem. Inhaber von Weblogs Inc. darauf ist nicht gerade positiv. Das hat auch seinen Grund, wie er in Creative-Weblogging: What a bunch of thieves schreibt:
Well, an outfit called Creative-Weblogging has been ripping us off for over a year, and today I’m forced to put a stop to it. These guys have been stealing our HTML code and design for over a year…. The ironic part about this is that these slime buckets raised their first round from two folks I’ve never heard of today. Whoever these loser investors are they should do some due diligence. You guys are investing in a bunch of worthless lies and cheats. Whatever money you gave them is probably embezzled right now. I mean, if you don’t have a problem stealing a persons IP why would you have a problem stealing someones cash? Also, to whoever the loser is who runs Creative-Thieves, don’t you realize that advertisers, the press, and most importantly bloggers are never going to want to associate themselves with a thief? If people think I’m going to get soft just because we were acquired they are sadly, and profoundly, mistaken. I’d tell you idiots you would be hearing from my lawyers, but at this point you should expect a call from AOL’s lawyers.
